Although sometimes it feels like we live back in pioneer days, we do have an outdoor thermometer. It's on the back porch and perfectly easy to check. However, it's much more fun to judge the temperature by the animals.
How much frost is on the backs of cattle?
A lot of frost? It's cold.
How many legs are the chickens standing on?
Just one? It's pretty cold.
Don't worry chickens, temperatures look like they are headed up for the next few days.
